Working Overseas, do I also pay tax in SA?

We accept that you are a South African tax resident temporarily working Overseas. You will then still have to declare and possibly pay tax in the RSA on all your income.

The remuneration earned outside South Africa may qualify for an exemption from normal tax.

This would apply if you have been outside South Africa for a period or periods exceeding 183 full days in aggregate during any 12 month period and for a continuous period exceed 60 full days and the services (in respect of which the remuneration was derived) were rendered during that period.
